    Words & Music by Ed Bruce

    I wish I'd known the man a little better
    That turned my mama on
    He must have been a heck of a man
    'Cause mama was a lady, don't you know

    Mama was no prude, but she was proper
    Never wore her dress too short
    She didn't care if I did, but she'd have never taken a drink
    Grandma Kate did the best she could to see mama grew up right
    So she'd be fittin' one day for courtin'
    And to wear some gentleman's ring

    - Chorus -
    I wish I'd known the man a little better
    That turned my mama on
    They say he was always laughing and sang a right nice song
    I wish I'd known the man a little better
    That turned my mama on
    He must have been a heck of a man
    'Cause mama was a lady, don't you know

    I hear he came to town one day in a rusty old '49 Ford
    Selling ladies shoes and assorted greeting cards
    He was killin' good-lookin' and easy to like
    And turnin' all the ladies heads
    But he saw mama first and you've heard stories
    'Bout how some of them travelin' men are

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Mama seemed to forget the things that Grandma Kate had always told her
    She ran away one night with that travelin' man
    Hey bought gas at Reba's truck stop and drove to DeSoto County
    But he brought her home next day, a lady, with a ring upon her hand

    Mama told me how the fever took him when I was barely five
    But I can remember him pitchin' me up and catchin' me
    And I love to sit and listen to her tell me about my Daddy
    She says he thought the sun must surely rise and set in me

    (Repeat Chorus)
